This morning at church, the priest told us the story of how Valentine's day came about.
Apparently in the time of the reign of Claudius 2nd., Claudius decided he didn't want his army of men to get married because he wanted them to be totally dedicated to the army. When Valentine saw the distress these young men suffered he went against Claudius and married them in secret.
When Claudius found out, he had Valentine Tortured and beheaded. Not a good story but if it's true, it goes to show what people would do for love! (This is a short version Google it if you want to find out more).
I hope you all had a super Valentine's day and wishing you all much love!
Happy Chinese New Year as well!
